Disability and Social Movements

Автор: Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins

Короткое описание книги

This book provides the reader with a ground-breaking understanding of disability and social movements.

By describing how disability is philosophically, historically, and theoretically positioned, Carling-Jenkins is able to then examine disability relationally through an evaluation of the contributions of groups engaged in similar human rights struggles.

The book locates disability rights as a new social movement and provides an explanation for why disability has been divided rather than united in Australia.

Finally, it investigates whether the recent campaign to implement a national disability insurance scheme represents a re-emergence of the movement.

It will be of interest to all scholars and students of both disability studies and social movements.
